That nose almost looks like a slimmed down and streamlined SkyKnight nose.  :thumbsup:

I like it  :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:


I always hope for the best.
Unfortunately,
experience has taught me to expect the worst.

Size (of the stash) matters.

Can you use 'slimmed', 'streamlined' and 'Skynight' in the same sentence?  ;D
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

I love the look of the original Corsair, but this is a great take on it :)
Fantasic job in making it too, it looks seamless!

I've always thought that Corsair looks cute rather than ugly - it is laughing all the time, just like X-32! ;D Nevertheless, this - whatever word describes brutalist architecture applied to mechanical engineering - interpretation is still made of win and awesome.

Considering the power of its engine, four hardpoints seems a little low number, as even the fuselage missile rails were lost. Overwing pylons, Jag or BAC Lightning style? ;D

Thanks everybody!

@ Snowtrooper: yeah, I guess overwing tanks will be very suitable freeing up the inner hardpoints for some mudmoving explosives.. So go ahead give it a try! The conversion is easier than expected....that is if you cut the fuselage right...

This is great! It took me three looks to see what was different about it. It just looked very nicely "wrong"  ;)
